Start time: 19:45 GMT
Newcastle and Manchester United go against each other in a match of the 21st round of the “Premiership”. The match is on Tuesday, January 12, from 19:45 GMT at ‘Sports Direct Arena’.
“Geordies” are in the relegation zone to 18th place with a total of 17 points. The team lost their last three league games and conceded over the weekend and defeat in the tournament “FA Cup”. There was hardly in the team have considered the option to move to the Cup, since it seems that they expect a serious fight to remain in the elite.
In his last game ot Boxing Day “The Magpies” lost with 0:1 against Everton and conceded fifth home loss of the season. The only team to beat at home are against Liverpool and Norwich as a general won only nine points from ten games.
The leading scorer in the team is Georginio Wijnaldum who has so far scored seven goals, while assists leader Moussa Sissoko 5 decisive passes. The shape of Vaynaldum however dropped and the Dutchman needs to improve his game, as the whole team of “The Magpies” is dependent on his performance in the offensive plan.
Manchester United :
Manchester United is on 5-th position in the ranking with a total of 33 points and is nine behind the leader Arsenal. “Red Devils” recorded two consecutive victories, but continue to show poor game. Over the weekend, prevailed with minimum 1:0 in the third division Sheffield United for “FA Cup”, as fans of “Old Trafford” had to wait 90 minutes to allow the team to score and then a penalty. In his first game for 2016 in “Premiaship” United beat Swansea 2: 1 at home by ending a series of six matches without a win in the league.
Top scorer of Manchester United’s Anthony Marcial with 5 goals. The Frenchman scored in the last league success over Swansea and will look for another goal in the upcoming match. Juan Mata was there 3 assists, putting it over his teammates.
Last season “The Red Devils” won at “Sports Direct Arena” with 1:0, which registered a third consecutive victory in this stadium. In the last meeting between the two teams but the winner was aired after the 0:0 at “Old Trafford”.
Even two wins can not guarantee peace of Louis van Gaal. Dutch specialist needs at least 5-6 consecutive good results with which to regain credibility of the leadership team. The hosts are without fairly major players in the upcoming match due to injuries – Anita, Cisse, Riviere, Obertan and Haidara. Given the composition of the crippled “Geordies” and the lack of width, I think the guests are obliged to win because if they do not, then their place among the top four in the final standings will be not sure.
